The churchgoers presented zero public safety risk.
Ive often wondered about formerly civil nations that descend into vicious totalitarianism.

The most obvious being a country of culture, manufacturing, science, and civil society that succumbed to the National Socialist German Workers (NAZI) Party.
Having some German ancestry, Ive wondered if a federal, state, or local government in the United States could ever get Americans to violate other Americans rights just because a political leader says so regardless of what the U.S. or state constitutions say. An incident in Greenville, Mississippi last week brought back this curiosity. And, sadly, may be providing an answer to my question.
As a cop who wrote frequently in our union newspaper, The Guardian, I made it clear that I would never obey an order that violated an Americans Second Amendment rights.

This is the **** revolutions are made of.

Never happen. A few will take a stand but not many. Most not only will comply but will turn those who do not comply in to the authorities. Read the posts on here.
Took a while to dig out the info but oh yeah, he’s a prog.
A friend of mine has just been appointed parish administrator in Greenville. He’s a smart guy and very traditional. It will be interesting to see what happens there. My guess is that he will be unofficially available while trying to keep out of the news.
9mm to Fascist, you rights are suspended...
Yep and these names will be added to the list.
You mean those God-given rights inherent to everyone? Does God know about this?
The rights come from God, not from cops.
Abuse of power under the color of law is a crime
Deprivation of rights under color of law.
Simple, specific, and pertinent.
Hold him personally responsible.
And the Gov. too.
Can someone explain what is going on in miss.? Its one of the top Christian conservative states in the country. Whats up there right now?I thought those in power were actual conservatives.Apparently not. What about the state supreme court?
